Hiya i am doing a music video and was told that I wasnt allowed to use faces. is this true
see below
"When are publicity rights relevant?

Publicity rights allow individuals to control how their voice, image
or likeness is used for commercial purposes in public. These rights
are relevant to any work that contains human subjects, such as
photographs, audio or video interviews, plays, songs, and other spoken
or visual content. When transmitting this sort of content, including
the voices or images of anyone other than yourself, you may need to
get permission from those individuals if you are using their voice or
images for commercial purposes. This is a distinct and separate
obligation from obtaining the copyright license, which only gives you
a license from the author (or photographer) but not from the subjects.
A Creative Commons license does not waive or otherwise affect the
publicity rights of subjects. "

From my understanding they have to trademark their image for this to be right.

Most pd stuff is from contract films so all images where owed by the studio. So you should be fine.

But don't take my word for it, I'm still looking into alot of this stuff myself.

You should be okay if the subjects are actors. If you are still concerned use a video editor to distort their faces.
